L2 aural vocabulary knowledge (AVK) is an important yet relatively under-researched and underemphasized dimension of L2 vocabulary knowledge (Matthews, 2018; Siegel, 2016). AVK in very simple terms is knowledge of what a word ‘sounds’ like in speech. In more complete terms, AVK is the store of knowledge that facilitates accurate perception of the phonological form of spoken words and enables rapid mapping of those forms onto existing representations held in the mental lexicon of the listener.
